He loved catch-and-release bass fishing, traveling, reading and always recruited for UA Local 372 Plumbers and Pipefitters apprenticeship program. He had that “Arthur way” that made everyone love him. He was proud that he worked with McAbee Construction during its infancy and through the years, and he loved working for McAbee “on the river”. He also worked as a maintenance supervisor at Lawter International. Very special thanks to one of his wife’s first cousins, Chad Payne, for donating a kidney that gave Arthur a productive and healthy life for almost nine years. Also, thanks to Shirley Fields, Scott Burke, members of Serendipity Club, HCHS Class of 1969, and church family of Five Mile Primitive Baptist Church.
Pallbearers will be Gregg Haney, Adam Haney, Chad Payne, Chuck Payne, Nelson Segura and Keith Holiman.
In lieu of flowers, Arthur would appreciate donations to Five Mile Primitive Baptist Church
